The Roamin' Roman

Benvenuto! You have happened upon the blog of a wandering Catholic American college student studying for a year in Rome, the Eternal City. You will find here my pontifications, ruminations, reflections, images, and ponderings on my life in Rome. Ciao!

Another mosaic in that series, which depicts the life of Mary. Here is a beautiful scene of the "dormition" or Assumption of Mary. Note how Christ, who was once her Child in swaddling clothes, is now holding HER as His child, wrapped in swaddling clothes as He carries her to heaven. Beautiful iconography I think.
